Was there enough drama for you on last night’s (June 4) premiere of The Real Housewives of New York Season 5? We counted at least four mini-spats between the Housewives, old and new, and even a House husband (we’re talking to you, Mario!).
But the most personal and storied fight involved LuAnn and Ramona, the only two New York ladies who have been around since Season 1. As we noted in our recap, LuAnn begins this season in the unfortunate position of being officially wronged by another Housewife. To summarize: LuAnn wants an apology from Ramona for allegedly calling her a “weekend mom,” and insinuating that LuAnn isn’t the best parent.
Ramona stood by her comments, and refused to back down and apologize. Later in the premiere episode, LuAnn arrives at the ladies’ luncheon in a huff, breezes indignantly through a story about Ramona blackmailing her in the middle of the night, and departs in a swift, Chanel perfume-scented exit. For someone claiming to want an end to the drama, the Countess certainly milked the cinematic effects in that scene.
By the end, whose side were you on? Team LuAnn or Team Ramona? Vote in our poll below!
